Is he the guy holding the revolution poster, or is it somebody behind him?

The mask guy isn't holding the revolution sign.

I like Jamie Dimon

Citigroup, in an act of idiocy, actually let him go. They'd be so better off had he stayed on and been promoted to the top job. He got JP Morgan Chase out of the subprime mess, detecting the problem way before the rest of them.

He is several intellectual notches above most in business or government, as this will indicate

Now that we're nationalizing the banking industry in the name of free enterprise, it's high time we start thinking about how to think about that industry in the same way we think about government.

Just take a look at the resume on this Jamie Dimon character. The Browning School. Tufts. Harvard MBA. In other words, he's exactly the kind of pointy-headed, over-educated coastal elitist that got us into this mess in the first place.

Well, I say it's time we stopped making a fetish of college degrees and book learning and fancy-pants cosmopolitan "intellectuals" who "know" how to "do" "things." There's nothing wrong with America that can't be fixed by plain old non-blinking heartland horse sense. With that in mind, I propose that we replace all the CEOs implicated in this crisis with randomly selected soccer moms from...oh, let's say...Indiana. If it's good enough for Washington, it's good enough for Wall Street, dammit!

And just think--as an added bonus, we may finally be able to break the Israelites' stranglehold on our financial system!

Oops...I wasn't supposed to say that last part out loud, was I?

Ah, but Jamie steered his corporation far wide of them mortgage rocks. So let him be an exception to this rule.


Which otherwise is not the worst idea of the month by a long shot.

Fuck. What's the point of having a conspiracy when the VP knows about it?
